School Overview

Briar Cliff University is a community committed to higher education within a liberal arts and Catholic perspective. Briar Cliff University began as a Catholic women's college in 1930, named after the hill it sits upon. It began admitting male students in 1966, and added master's and doctoral degrees in the 2000s. While the mission of the University has not changed in more than 80 years, Briar Cliff continues to grow and expand, always placing the needs of students first. In the Franciscan tradition of service, caring and openness to all, Briar Cliff emphasizes quality education for its students, combining a broad intellectual background with career development.
